Fabulous Kitchen Designs

Isn't this a warm kitchen?  

Several thoughts while studying the picture:
1.  Notice the detailing above the doorway--it appears like a tall case clock.

2.  Imagine how different this would appear if the refrigerators had not been paneled.  

3.  I think this is a lovely kitchen, but don't you think the three light fixtures are distracting?  I   keep looking to the ceiling.  Maybe it's just the camera angle.      

Wouldn't it be nice if we could hid all of the appliances like this refrigerator drawer?


  1. Some of the elements are quite lovely in that kitchen, but I have to admit that it's a bit too much wood for our taste. Even with the white ceilings, light countertops and backsplash and the big window, the space feels kind of dark.

  2. it's like the library meets the kitchen!!

  3. I agree, it's a very warm kitchen, and I also agree that the light fixtures are very distracting. I don't really like any of them, to be honest. I think they could have used a little more modern of fixtures (even in this traditional of a room). I love the clock idea, but I would have done a stainless refrig just to add a pop to the kitchen (lighten it up a bit).

  4. I like thte wood, but I agree the light fixtures are all wrong. I also agree with AEO, I would probably gone with the stainless frig door.
